Remember Sona Mohapatra. The Indian pop/folk sensation sort of disappeared off the radar after her debut album “Sona” in 2006. But the ‘Bolo Na’ and ‘Aaja Ve’ singer is now back with ‘Diljale’.
Her new video single will be officially released on September 1, 2009. But you can catch a preview here.
From the looks of it, this one is going to match the popularity of her first album, which remains one of my favourites.
In a blog interview in 2007, Sona told Toe Knee Unplugged her main objective was to create ‘soul music’, music that moves you. Her new album will carry forward that objective.
TV viewers have already heard the ‘Paas Aao’ number from the album — it’s the popular Close-Up song, one of the many jingles Sona has sung for television commercials.
